Former student in Mr. online about Air and Space Law in Leiden
Anmol Dhawan (24) graduated cum laude from the Advanced LLM in Air and Space Law in Leiden on 28 August 2023. He comes from Mumbai in India and did his bachelor law studies at National Law University Delhi. He has been in the Netherlands since September 2022, so over one year now.
Why did you specifically choose Leiden University in the Netherlands?
‘Leiden University is a very popular name in the international law field and considered highly prestigious back home in India. It is also the number 1 university in the field of Air and Space Law.'
'I had received other admission/scholarship offers for a master’s in law from the University of California – Berkeley, University of Pennsylvania School of Law, Cornell Law School, University of Humboldt, but decided to join Leiden Law School eventually.'
'One reason was that this programme is globally renowned for producing some of the finest minds in air and space law – a community I aspired to join. Another reason was my dream to develop a career in a European country with a high quality of life during the early stage of my legal career – and of course, the Netherlands is second to none in that aspect.'
'I am delighted to say that one year hence, this was the best decision of my life, and I have cherished every bit of my time in Leiden. I am grateful to the International Institute of Air and Space Law (IIASL) at Leiden Law School for making this possible by offering me the Leiden University Excellence Scholarship (LExS), which substantially covered the tuition fee for the programme.’
